In decerebrate newborn rats, serotonin (5-HT) is a respiratory depressant via activation of 5-HT2 receptors, whereas it evokes respiratory stimulant effects when applied to the isolated brainstem obtained from the newborn rat. This discrepancy could be due to deafferentation in the in vitro preparation. The aim of our study was to analyse the role of vagal(More)
The intrinsic positive-end-expiratory pressure (PEEPi) increases the inspiratory load, the cost of breathing and thus oxygen consumption (V(O2)). It has been shown that applying an extrinsic positive-end-expiratory pressure (PEEPe) reduces the inspiratory threshold load but the optimal PEEPe level is still in debate. We hypothesize that the best level of(More)
